|Type of event||Panel Discussion|
|Venue||Black Development Agency, 5 Russell Town Avenue, Bristol, BS5 9LT|
Poverty and exclusion appears an intractable issue for many people in society. For many of those trapped, they will live shorter often unfulfilled lives, without work or suffering long periods of unemployment. Some will end up homeless, alienated from friends and family with no hope for the future. Worse still their children are far more likely to end up in a similar position. A number of different answers are presented in the evening and there will be the opportunity for an open discussion. Potentially the evening will lead to some new thinking about the issues as academics and practitioners meet together in an open forum.
The event is followed by a reception.
Richard Pendlebury has many years experience at trustee and senior management level within the charitable sector. He has been involved in founding a number of charities which tackle poverty and exclusion. He is currently the Chief Executive of Emmaus Bristol a social enterprise which gives homeless people home and work in a community setting. He was appointed MBE in 2009 and is a Deputy Lieutenant of County and City of Bristol.
